Que Sera, Sera

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be

The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera

What will be, will be. -
Doris Day

That part of the song - Que Sera Sera has really got to be the best written lyrics ever. I don't mean it's the best because of the Spanish words but because, it's the truth. Whatever will be, will be; no point of worrying of things that I can't control. What matters is now, the present; not the future or the past.

Let's be frank. As we get older, we worry more about our future. What will I be when I grow up? Which university will I get into? Who is my soulmate? When will I get married? How many kids will I have? And more often, we are worried that we would not achieve things that we want and hope for. We end up with things or other dreams that were never our goals in the first place. In the end, disappointment sets in deeper than before but only because (this is what I believe) we have already controlled the future and have lost control of our present.

So what if the person you like doesn't like you back? It only means your Mr. Right isn't here yet. In the meantime, fish for more fishes *mischievous smile* So what if you end in a place that was far from your ideal place? Well, I believe wherever you end up at, that is the place where you're meant to be. So what if the future is bleak and you're near at wit's end? Stop worrying. The future is not for you to see. Live now and do what you can right now because there's a light at end of every tunnel.

Well, maybe I'm writing this post to advise myself because I'm that sort of person - who's constantly worrying about the future and have the habit of foreseeing things. It's not healthy, really. It's annoying, depressing and stressful. Due to this, I caught myself being sad and depressed for no apparent reason because while physically I am here, mentally I'm already in the future. It just doesn't work that way.

The other day, I caught myself scattered in my thoughts, worrying and being sad about certain things and all of a sudden, a voice appeared in my head and said, "Que Sera, Sera". Maybe my subconscious mind was trying to save me and I immediately went on google to search for it and I ended up hitting the replay button over and over again. I knew what the other half in me was trying to tell me.

I'll just have to take what life throws at me and stop worrying so much what else life is going to throw at me. Just need that faith when I wake up, it is better than yesterday.

If it's meant to be, it will be; because whatever will be, will be.
